While this is not something yours truly would wear, it seems like the masses are loving it. Calls are pouring into designer Luke Song’s hat store from folks wanting a replica of the $500 hat.The design for Franklin’s $500 grey felt hat with gigantic bow studded with rhinestones actually came from two different hats. Song said, “It was Ms. Franklin’s idea, she walked through the shop and said ‘I want that bow (put) on that hat.'”
As this hat was custom made for the Queen, looks like folks will have to settle for the next best thing, which is a satin-ribbon version that sells for $179.
